Wireless Monitoring System for Fireman’s Competence Objective Assessment
Keywords:Inertial measurement unit, real-time location system, spider diagram, tracking, training quality assessment, wireless multi-sensor system
Developing technologies associated with tracking human movement and behaviour enable new applications for competence assessments from training results of professionals, such as medical staff, sportsmen or emergency servicemen. This article considers a methodological approach to design a system for firefighter’s skills and competence assessment. Assessed training features such as in-building behaviour and tasks execution are analysed based on data gathered with wireless Ultra-Wideband Real-Time Location System, UWB RTLS, and Inertial Measurement Unit, IMU. The assessment is based on the predefined required training tasks, the expert’s expertise and results of the trainee’s test. The Unity game engine is used for data processing and visualization. As the comprehensive final map of the trainee’s skills, the spider diagram is applied and the single score method provides the conclusive statement. The proposed solution was verified experimentally in real environment.
